THE SENATE ARMED SERVICES REPORT ON BUSH TORTURE PRACTICES & POLICIES
It began with a presidential determination that the U.S. need not observe Common Article 3 of the Geneva Convention regarding abuse of al Queda and Taliban detainees, and it quickly morphed into an interrogation methodology mirroring that employed by Chinese Communists against American soldiers in Korea. But it was neither humane nor effective, argues Devon Chaffee of Human Rights First. Barak Obama has stated that when he is president, the U.S. will not torture and will honor the Geneva Conventions. Obama also stated in a TV interview that if "somebody has blatantly broken the law" (emphasis added), they should be prosecuted, but Chaffee observes that Obama has taken nothing off the table regarding holding the culpable parties, including Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and White House Counsel Alberto Gonzalez, accountable.
